Packaging for the physical protection of the merchandise

The correct use of packaging will serve not only to protect the merchandise when handling and transporting it, but must also help to preserve it. Not only must the warehouse conditions be optimal for storage, but it must also allow the products to be preserved in a manner appropriate to their characteristics. In previous articles we have talked about cold stores or how a warehouse should be for the storage of perishable products.

How to ensure safety of the merchandise?

You will need a cardboard box:

Our recommendation is that you use new boxes because, although it is a light and resistant material, it can suffer shocks and get wet.

Bubble wrap:

We recommend using bubble wrap to wrap the objects that will go in the box. Do not use clothing or plastic bags as a substitute, especially if there are several objects, so that they do not damage each other.



Put a layer of padding of at least 5cm on the bottom of the box and keep in mind that heavier items will need more padding on the bottom, sides and on the top of the box.

Avoid overloading:

Limit the weight and filling, because depending on the type of box and its size, it will hold one weight or another. Avoid overfilling them and make sure there are no exposed sharp points, edges or edges that could damage the boxes and cause them to open.

Fill in the empty spaces:

Please note that your custom bottom closure boxes will be stacked. By filling in the empty spaces, you will have more stability and your objects will be more secure. These gaps (especially the corners) can be filled with packing filler material such as chips, corner pieces, foams and others.

Packing tape:

Seal the boxes hermetically with 50mm wide adhesive tape preferably. Also, if the destination is very rainy and humid, we recommend wrapping the box with plastic.

Labels and Documentation:

Place the shipping address labels on the top of the box, avoiding overlap with the clasps, corners, or on the tape. In addition, if your shipment is international outside the European Union, additional documentation will be necessary for Customs such as the  Packing List  that you must place in an envelope.
